A kind of a blind date: couchsurfing
I also met some of his friends during my stay who were very kind as well. It was very easy going and friendly.
The only thing I could help him with was by tuning his laptop and show him how to use MS Word or rather Google Docs in a proper way.
In the following pictures I tried to capture the nice atmosphere in Galway.
|Seaside of Galway|
|The docks in Galway by sunset|
|Candy shop - I couldn't resist :-)|
|Actually a lot of book shops and book exchange there - I love it!|
|At the docks|
|Nice old architecture|
|Small streets in Galway|
|Great breakfast at the Jungle Cafe|
Inside the Jungle Cafe - the owner is really kind and chatty.
He is also a great barista and has won some awards.
I felt very comfortable there.
|Great Pakistan food - but be careful with the green pepper...|
Too late... But now I got it for sure. Interesting was also that you eat the meal with bread which you have to roll and put it into the meal.
The hearts from Galway
|The Claddagh ring|
I know my fingers are not eligible for being a model but it shows how to wear the ring and what that means:
If the heart is showing back from you, it means it's still open for someone.
If the heart shows to you, that means you're already saved.
Pragmatical cruelty and my almost endless search for a window
Sandals?! I was even quite happy to have hand gloves with me. Well, this shows the difference between Irish people and German people. The Irish are very tough doesn't matter how cold it is.
I tried to pretend not looking surprisingly because I didn't want to be a sissy and I just said: "Sorry. Unfortunately, I forgot them at home...". Just a white lie.
|Sandals are welcome at the Beauty Clinic. Doesn't matter what's the weather like...|
|I'm happy that I got a ticket|
Nothing about "survival of the fittest"
- I confess that's usually my rule -
everyone is queuing, even me.
Inspirational and nice chat with great apple pie and cats
On my way to Gort -
I like this picture because it mirrors my feelings for the amazing
landscape of Ireland and my hunger to see a lot more from the world
Some streets were pretty flooded and the water was splashing against the windows when we drove through it.
|Some so-called turloughs|
|One of Martina's cuddly cat :-) and her lovely window in her bathroom - that's a proper window!|
New experiences = new ideas
Therefore I have to try something new that will open my mind. And don't forget to trust my common sense. It'll actually lead me.
